She's on the payroll of the Vatican Bank, 
But she works in an American book store and her husband is the Byzantine type,

I asked her what she had to do at St Mike's

She said "I came here trying to remember something but I'm only in it now for the wine"

I Lost My Motto, I Lost My Motto

She expects no optical illusions from me, not that she doesn't give me plenty to witness 
It's just I don't know how to part the red sea
I don't want to be in his morality play, he thinks that marriage is a good institution
So let him find a girl to keep it that way
It might make it better that he's bad to her  but I don't know what's happened to my boundaries

I Lost My Motto, I Lost My Motto, I Lost My Motto

And I don't think this is an issue with god
When it comes to the law I wouldn't think I'm a purist
You cant break something that doesn't work anymore
And now I'm seeing my life like a tourist

We took a taxi to a their summer retreat, we changed the locks and the points of access
We didn't go to the front door for a week
I found a volume by the side of their bed, I said "I've read it I'm awaiting the sequel"
She gave me "Under The Volcano" instead
And said "Now what was that you lost?" and I said "not too much just my fortune cookie"

Bring yourself to sleep and maybe I can help you find
Something so naive it makes you cry
Everything we thought was deep turned out to be a lie 
Don't blame me coz I've been on your side

Can you hear me can you read me
Baby freeze Queen

Can you hear me can you read me
Baby freeze Queen
